JCidel: Jeannie B. Cidel’s early childhood years were filled with wonder as she navigated her love for bold colors, abstract art, geometric shapes, and exquisite fashion. She had a creative imagination beyond her years and would often walk with a sketch pad to doodle fashion styles she longed to create.
Jeannie had a recurring sensation for an avant-garde fashion styling concept inspired by the extraordinary character. She used placemats, metal netting, burlap, and rattan webbing found in her home to make clutch bags and would also attempt to create her own abstract art by painting bold colors onto blank canvas material.
Jeannie rediscovered her gift of designing and handcrafting clutch bags following the 2008 Great Recession and put her creative talents to work. However, she could not find more high-quality fabrics or distinct artwork to fit her vision.
This led Jeannie on a journey to search out high-quality textiles and signature works of art from distinguished Artists to complete her imagination for an exclusive, timeless, and posh handbag collection. She ignited collaborations with world-renowned Artists: Roberto Alborghetti, Darryl Schiff, and Fu Wenjun for their inspiring and iconic works that go beyond traditions.
Jeannie is now fulfilling her vision by elevating the styling of fashion enthusiasts with JCIDEL’s daring and quintessential handbag collection that transcends cultural norms.

DivaBigg will also launch their latest collection for women with real ‘Curves’.

Andre also was a breakout star designer & tv personality In 2013, when he competed on the First season of Bravo TV “Styled to Rock”, a fashion reality show (produced by Robyn RIHANNA ) which gave him exposure, and with that he amassed a rotating roster of celebrity clientele.

Pam Pinay: The journey of this amazing designer is inspirational. In March of 2021, at the height of the Covid-19 global pandemic, two Filipina artists based in Europe founded the brand Pam Pinay as a social project. Pamela Gotangco, a multi-awarded visual artist based in Switzerland, and Christian Belaro, a graphic fashioner based in England were answering the need for Filipino women seamstresses and weavers in the Philippines. Pam Pinay is a collection of high-quality wearable art that showcases one hundred percent Filipino-made crafts. It aims to promote social entrepreneurship, sustainability, and responsible branding. The materials for the collection included weaving from the various indigenous communities in the Philippines to provide income opportunities for the local artisans.
“When the global pandemic paralyzed world economies, I was thinking of ways how my art could be part of the solution that the pandemic posed to women in the economically challenged areas of the Philippines”, says Pamela Gotangco. And for Christian Belaro, a year into the pandemic, it had become imperative to support those in need. An online collaboration was formed when strict travel restrictions were imposed. The first design was born in May of 2021 and was produced a month after. The Pam Pinay process starts with Pamela Gotangco painting the fabric design in Switzerland, translating the design digitally in the United Kingdom, and printing the fabrics in the Philippines.
